From some of the people who were at the last anniversary service in our present temple:last temple anniversary2

The Sunday service in the Temple was an experience that words cannot really describe; the nearest one is mystical and the cantata sung by the choir, ethereal.

The Temple sings and the walls alight with timeless Love.

A wonderful, wonderful celebration, so moving and beautifully crafted by Jenny Bateman.

I was privileged to be one of the first to hear this wonderful Cantata - heavenly harmonies in the light.

A most wonderful, beautiful experience.

A totally unique and inspirational spiritual experience created by the blending of music, singing and the spoken word.

Celestial enfoldment...beautiful.

So very emotional. A closing down, and an opening up to the new.

 

White Eagle FacilitatorsIn the White Eagle Wisdom School we seek to ensure that all our volunteer facilitators feel nurtured, and as confident and informed as possible, in order to be able to offer courses, retreats and workshops to others.

So at New Lands it has been a joy to welcome facilitators from many parts of the UK and Europe for a week of retreat, as well as on-going development.

Besides courses in facilitating for the Wisdom School, further training and support courses exist is the areas of meditation, healing and astrology.

We can go forth reinforced, empowered and feeling loved...

 New Temple front viewIt's great news that a section of our new temple design has been selected by the Royal Academy of Arts to feature in its annual Summer Exhibition.

The model for the dome of the new temple - which was exhibited at the open event on Saturday 18th May – fits nicely in to the Royal Academy’s theme this year, which focuses on sustainability and the environment.

The new temple complex will benefit from natural materials including chalky brick and sustainable timber, selected both for their gravitas (brick) and their symbolic expression (timber).

Our UK communications officer, Tom Taplin says: 'The whole design is beautiful, but I can see why the Royal Academy has chosen the curved dome section specifically, because not only does it evoke a sense of calm and fluidity, but it contributes to the overall sustainable design elements of the new complex and that is really important to us.'

According to its designers, James Gorst Architects, the new buildings will embody the built history of Hampshire: the brickwork with its chalky lime mortar, references the county’s underlying chalk geology, whilst the timber frame reflects the extensive woodland of the South Downs National Park. east elevation

Background sky 1We don’t take too much notice of figures in the Lodge – White Eagle was so clear that success isn’t measured in that way! But it’s nice to know we are expanding in London, and we did compile a set of figures for the Trustees recently. There are increases in attendance at almost all of our activities between the year 2017-18 and 2018-19, with the biggest increases being at the Thursday afternoon healing service and the activities preceding it. We were also really pleased with the attendance at some of our retreat days last year, with the visit of Rozita Hansen and the day on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle topping the list.

We are in a good position to start a new healing group on a Thursday, but lack a room for it! So we’ve devised a whole new activity for those who would like to be doing spiritual work at 3 pm on a Thursday. With the title ‘Service of Attunement’, it’s an opportunity really to focus on the Star, using first the words of the Prayer for Humanity and then extending it into a prayer for all who need healing … and for peace among the nations. Finally, we work with the words sent out last year on the little silver Star card, saying, ‘In the light of the Star I am aligned with the love of God and the will of God’ three times over, before a silence. So far it’s been well received.

On Thursday 23 May we had a good discussion on our ‘Plan for London’ theme and this is proceeding into a more formal stage. If you would like to see the notes of the meeting on 23 May, please contact Colum This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Lastly, we are getting ready to welcome Jan DeVulder on 15 June, for her retreat day with Colum on the subject ‘Healing and the Power of Thought’. It begins at 10.30 for 11.00 am and continues to 4.30 pm. Donations welcome, and if you can let us know you are coming, that would be very helpful.

A White Eagle thought for June

'As you put into operation the simple and fundamental quality of tolerance and kindness, you will find that, without your being aware of it, your heart begins to swell with love.'

Because of its popularity we now post twice weekly. On Friday there is a thoughtful extended White Eagle quotation and many friends like to share this on their own Facebook page, so it is a lovely way to help spread White Eagle’s teaching and wisdom.

On Monday mornings we share an evocative reflection by one of the team at New Lands or in London (usually this is Jeremy Hayward) and this brings plentiful engagement from readers.Every post is accompanied by a photograph of the natural world at New Lands so we keep homely local colour as well as extending around the world!
